A TIME TO SOW
Harvest season is upon us. As I mentioned in other posts, this time of year is a favorite of mine…This is also the time when farmers begin all over again; planting wheat. The wheat is nourished by the nitrogen in the snow cover through the winter, and come spring, there is a brand new, beautiful layer of green shoots in the dark ground…a true sign of spring, and new life. There is nothing like the smell of a wet field-fresh sod scent, after a long, cold winter. This is yet another visual reminder to those who live on or visit a farm of the abundance that abounds in our country. A tiny seed that is planted, not only survives the winter, but flourishes, and feeds thousands of people. What an incredible thought! When I see the abundance of a new, little wheat sprouts, I am reminded of God’s grace. Grace flourishes too, under the harshest of conditions. It thrives, even when we are not at our best, and it too awakens new life after a harsh winter season!
This photo by the way is not availiable on my Etsy shop (www.etsy.com/shop/RusticStory) it is a family photo that I will cherish! It’s my brother-using equipment that my grandfather used to sow wheat in these very fields. Nothing runs like a Deere!
